The submitted contributions of the Technart 2017 conference will be published as a Virtual Special Issue in Microchemical Journal. All authors of papers presented at the conference (oral or poster) will have the chance to submit their work for this special issue.
All manuscripts will be subjected to the mandatory selection process for this journal, including the strict peer review procedure; therefore acceptance for presentation at the meeting is not a guarantee for publication in the journal.
Participants are invited to submit manuscripts based on TECHNART 2017 presentations for possible publication in Microchemical Journal, with the intention of including them in a Virtual Special Issue devoted to TECHNART 2017. All manuscripts must meet the standards of the journal: they will need to show clear analytical advances, not just "novelty" and they must match the scope of the journal.
A Virtual Special Issue implies that all papers will be handled and reviewed as regular submissions to the journal. Accepted papers will be published individually in regular issues. A footnote will indicate at which conference the paper was presented, and this will be used for selection and linking to the Virtual Special issue.
Accepted papers are published individually in regular issues as soon as they are accepted.
- Footnotes indicate at which Conference they were presented, and are the source for selection and linking to the virtual special issue
- Virtual special issue is prepared and placed on individual Journal special issue site – with links to papers on Science Direct.
- Preface and possible photo's – with the added possibility of videos e.g. from poster sessions, available via virtual special issue.
